Here's the lowdown:

Los Angeles, CA 90046
Space is extremely limited so RSVP right away by sending an E-MAIL HERE that includes your FULL NAME and contact info. In addition, by mentioning DREAD CENTRAL in your email, you'll be entitled to a free poster that will be given to you when you arrive at Meltdown Comics Gallery.
"Meltdown Comics is one of the true champions of indie-art culture, and I couldn't be happier that they're hosting Godkiller's first public screening," said Matt Pizzolo, Godkiller's writer-director. "When I first visited LA and wondered if I could actually move here, I wound up at Meltdown and decided 'okay, I can live in any town with a comic shop this awesome.' Meltdown represents the bleeding edge of media, so the fact they're supporting Godkiller is incredibly exciting to me."
But wait ... there's more! Remember the special poster Tim Seeley created for Godkiller that we showed you the other day? Hot Topic will be exclusively offering a limited edition DVD with that as its cover, and you can order it here.
Godkiller: Walk Among Us is the epic story of a boy on a quest to save his dying sister. It takes place in a dark future after economic collapse, after nuclear holy war, and after Earth is colonized by alien races. Tommy and his kid sister Lucy live in an orphanage in one of the few remaining city-states, but Lucy is critically ill and desperately in need of a new heart. Tommy's odyssey to find a new heart for his sister begins when he follows an organ-stealing prostitute named Halfpipe out of the city-state and into the savage borderland known as Outer City.
Godkiller's eclectic cast of voice actors includes Danielle Harris, Lance Henriksen, Justin Pierre, Tiffany Shepis, Bill Moseley, Nicki Clyne, Katie Nisa, Lydia Lunch, and Davey Havok. Halo-8's innovative release schedule for the project is as follows:
